PREMIERE: Nocando Overcomes Insurmountable Odds in His "Last Man Standing" Video


By Craig Jenkins


LA rapper Nocando kicks off the new year with the video for his recent solo cut "Last Man Standing," a song he says is about "perseverance and grace under fire." The video, produced by No's friend Derek Jennings of Apotheosis Entertainment and directed by Tennyson Turner, finds the rapper weathering a gauntlet of drug addiction, sexual impropriety, race-fueled police brutality, political punditry, and religious zealotry to get to his sunny happily-ever-after.

Nocando also notes that Sonny Ray, his canine costar for the clip, represents Dogumantry, an organization dedicated to dog rescue, awareness, and tolerance. Stream "Last Man Standing" below.
